117th Congress

Rep. Michelle Fischbach

MN-07 (Republican)

Congresswoman Fischbach has stood up against the pro-abortion agenda of the Biden-Harris administration and Pelosi Democrats who are actively working to expand abortion access and abortion funding. Rep. Fischbach has voted consistently to defend the lives of the unborn and infants. This includes stopping hard-earned tax dollars from paying for abortion, whether domestically or internationally, and protecting health care provider rights for those who refuse to engage in brutal abortions.

Congresswoman Fischbach co-chairs the House Pro-Life Caucus. She co-led an appropriations request letter to retain longstanding pro-life protections in appropriations bills, and introduced H.R. 2619, the Protecting Life and Taxpayers Act. She also offered a unanimous consent request for consideration of H.R. 18, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act, which would make the Hyde Amendment permanent, and spoke on the Floor in support of a procedural motion that would allow for a vote on H.R. 18.
